Waller Point LNG Files for DOE Authority to Export LNG to Non-FTA Nations
Waller Point LNG filed an application with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for long-term, multi-contract authorization to export LNG to Non-Free Trade Agreement countries in amounts up to approximately 1.5 million metric tons per year, which is equivalent to approximately 70 Bcf per year or 0.19 Bcf per day.
Waller Point LNG seeks authorization for a 25-year term to export LNG from its proposed Waller Point LNG Terminal presently under development at the entrance point of the Calcasieu Ship Channel in Cameron Parish in Southwest Louisiana.
This is the second application Waller Point LNG has submitted to DOE relating to the proposed export of LNG from the Waller Point Terminal.
The first application, filed on October 12, 2012, relates to the export of LNG to countries with which the United States currently has, or in the future enters into, a Free Trade Agreement.
